Past Due Date
My due date with my first was the 13th, so I'm now 12 days past due. I'm 1cm dilated, 50% effaced the last time my midwife checked me and have been experiencing contractions but nothing regular (pretty much the same it has been for weeks now). When the 11th came I started to get really excited and felt like it could happen at any moment, and now that I have waited for so long the feeling of imminence has weirdly lifted even though it is now more likely to happen than ever!
I'm not sure what I will try when I hit 42 weeks as far as induction goes, but I have been trying natural ways to induce labor (minus castor oil and black and blue cohosh) for a week now. My midwife has no problem with me being where I'm at now, and my son shows no signs of distress. People often comment on how tired of being pregnant I must be but really I feel great! I'm just ready to meet my son.
Has anyone else gone past their due date in this group? Or with previous children? Feel free to share your experience too!
